Folks -

As always, we here at the MDWFP would like to have the most accurate data possible to make management decisions regarding wild turkeys. Therefore, we need the help of the state's turkey hunters. If you are an avid turkey hunter that hunts anywhere in the state of Mississippi, you can assist us with data collection, by signing up to be a participant in the annual Spring Gobbler Hunting Survey. Data collection will only take a minute or two of your time following each day's hunt. It doesn't matter if you only hunt once or if you hunt every day of the season. Any information we can get helps.

In an effort to increase participation, we will be holding a gun raffle for all hunters that return a completed data booklet at the end of the season. So by helping us, you get a chance to win a Remington 870.

If you are interested in learning more, please see the SGHS page on the Turkey Program website. The article gives background information on the survey, describes the data that is collected and why it is important to the MDWFP, and also details what can be expected of the hunter. This article can be found at: http://home.mdwfp.com/wildlife/Species/Turkey/info.aspx?id=480

Also, we now have an online enrollment form which can be found at: http://home.mdwfp.com/wildlife/Species/Turkey/BookletForm.aspx

Morgan can we make this a "sticky" so it will get moved back to the top of the forum so it will be seen more often and hopefully more members will participate?

I just signed up online. I used to get them in the mail a few years back. I will be sure to send the data I collect back in once season is over.

Folks you will learn about yourself and your own habits as a hunter if you will keep track of the data you need to complete your survey.
I was drawn for a stand and stick ladder a couple years ago for a bowhunting survey I sent in.
The wildlife agency that keeps our hunting and resources available for us to use cannot do it alone and the license revenue alone cant be
Near enough for the manpower and resources the state has to utilize each year to provide us all the privilege we sometimes take for granted. I enjoy taking the time and the 'spittin and drummin' info the state compiles for you each year will answer a lot of questions before
You ever get dressed to go out for your first spring morning or afternoon to try to harvest your first longbeard of the season. If you have time
To do a survey do one and you might even learn a thing or two about yourself and the animals we all pursue so diligently.
I received my survey last week and it goes in the vest on Thursday!!!
